Romney’s Connection to a Bought Election
If people believe that there’s a choice or a democracy in the US, think again.
Mitt Romney, through various holding companies, owns the voting machine company that will decide the fate of the election in the US in November.
through a closely held equity fund called Solamere, Mitt Romney and his wife, son and brother are major investors in an investment firm called H.I.G. Capital. H.I.G. in turn holds a majority share and three out of five board members in Hart Intercivic, a company that owns the notoriously faulty electronic voting machines that will count the ballots in swing state Ohio November 7.
This is a classic example of why voting requires more analog connections, more transparency and more scrutiny.
And less ownership.
The true crime of all of this: in 2004, voting machines in Ohio handed the election to Bush Jr. Was there a connection way back in 2004 that people didn’t investigate?
